This was a good tournament. I enjoyed it a lot and am happy for Koepka. With that being said, it didn't "feel" like a major.
It was boring when he made zero mistakes (except for #10) and started draining everything on 13 and forward. Had Harmon hung on and Koepka made a few mistakes, I think I would have been a lot more interested.

I only got to watch about 2 hours total of this...however, it was a ton of fun to watch. Especially after being there and knowing what they were dealing with.

I can't believe how low the scores were. Amazing how good these guys are at this game.
No kidding. Once they figured out the holes they striped their shots to safe locations. Anyone could have won on the last day. It was one of the best Opens I've watched in years. Good job Erin Hills.

I watched it until ~17 and went to bed, safe in the knowledge that Brookie had it locked up. It was good golf, but nothing spectacular for a major. I kind of agree that it seemed to lack something, not sure what. Felt like a regular competition. Hats off to the winner, solid as a rock. He hits it miles, good short game and excellent with the flat stick. But I was impressed by some of the others too, Fleetwood seems to be coming of age. Matsuyama, Harman all really solid. Spotlight on Rickie again, can't seem to finish it out.

Oh, and here is our rough right now. Nice juicy fescue! Waiting to gobble up all those ProV1s. we have a sign up at the first tee. NO WHINGERS! If you can't handle the rough, please go home!

Just saw that Koepka was the first player in US OPEN history to hit over 80% of the fairways and 80% greens in regulation. He really helped himself with those stats......and then that putting. Wow!

I think he hit 86% fairways and 83% GIR for the week.
